Manchester United full-back Antonio Valencia has signed a one-year extension to his contract that will keep him at the club until 2019, with an option to extend for a further year.
Valencia, 31, played 43 games in all competitions for United this season and captained the side in their Europa League final victory against Ajax.

The Ecuador international joined the Old Trafford club from Wigan in 2009.
“I am absolutely delighted to have signed a new contract,” Antonio Valencia said.
“Manchester United has been my life since 2009. I would like to thank the manager for the confidence he has given me this season and I am sure that we will be challenging on all fronts next season.”
United only triggered a one-year extension to Valencia’s contract in January, at the time committing him to the club until 2018.
Reacting to the deal, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said: “It is no secret that I had been an admirer of Antonio’s long before I joined the club.
“I knew what a fantastic player he was and he has not disappointed me on that front. However, what I could never have imagined was what a great person he is.
“I know I have said this before but I truly believe it is a real privilege for us to have such a good player and such a good man. I am delighted he has extended his contract.”
